Under the guidance of Guru Gobind Singh, his disciple Banda Singh Bahadur takes on the Mughal armies to restore peace and justice in Punjab.
You’ve seen multiple versions of the Ramayana and the Mahabharata; even characters from these epics have got their own spin-offs on primetime television. But stories from the Sikh mythology have rarely been portrayed on screen.
The Rise of Banda Singh Bahadur is a sequel to 2014’s Chaar Sahibzaade and shifts focus from Guru Gobind Singh’s four sons, to the disciple who took his legacy forward.
Guru Gobind Singh visits sage Madho Das and urges him not to throw away his acute sense of justice and archery skills for a life of asceticism.
Madho Das then transforms into Khalsa warrior Banda Singh Bahadur. He leads the Sikh army into Mughal territories, slowly breaking their stronghold over Punjab, and along the way, avenges the death of Guru Gobind Singh’s family.
Director Harry Baweja and co-writer Harman Baweja have chosen an intrinsically interesting story to tell. Banda Singh’s training, his battles with the Mughals, his own shortcomings all have the ingredients for a good narrative, which keeps you in your seat even when the animation makes you stir in it.
And make you stir, it will. Subpar animation just doesn’t do justice to a story of this scale. It is like watching Baahubali through a Chota Bheem filter.
The songs are a distraction and the first half can get very verbose and is entirely too long. It appears to be a revision of the first Chaar Sahibzaade movie, because the story of Banda Singh actually only starts in the second half.
Put simply, if you were the kid who secretly played book-cricket in history class, you may find the movie tedious, but if stories of brave soldiers and great wars excite you, march on into that theatre.
Our overall critics rating is not an average of the sub score below.
The film is a sequel to 2014 film 'Chaar Sahibzaade.'
A virtual reality game based on the film's theme was installed at the cinema halls as part of the promotions.
The film opens with the climax where the Mughals have captured Banda Singh Bahadur. Moving into a flashback, we see Guru Gobind Singh travelling with his followers, and on his journey, he comes across sage Madho Das, who is also an excellent archer. Guru Gobind tells Madho that he has immense potential which should not go waste and offers him a chance to join the Khalsa warriors. Madho Das agrees and starts training. During his training, he learns about Guru Gobind Singh's past, where he was separated from his entire family and four sons, who were then captured by the Mughals and killed.
Meanwhile, Wazir Khan is still out to destroy the Sikh leader and sends two goons to the settlement in Nanded where Guru Gobind Singh lives. He is attacked and is in a critical condition. Fearing that he might not live too long, Guru Gobind SIngh chooses Madho Das - now Banda Singh - to be his successor.
Banda Singh travels far and wide, adding thousands of Sikh soldiers to his army along the way, and works towards ending the Mughal atrocities. He is eventually successful in hunting down Wazir Khan, who had taken the lives of two of Guru Gobind Singh's sons, and kills him. The last two minutes of the film consist of an elaborate narration of the events that then led up to Banda Singh's capture.
